OK .. about me,

I joined DA back in 2011 after a long absence from the art world. I decided to explore the humble graphite pencil and the human portrait and figure. I gave myself 5yrs to do this and this year 2015 is my 5th year. The one thing i have learned so far is that 5yrs is nowhere near enough time because with every step forward i take i discover more challenges and questions that i need to understand ... i guess the learning never stops but it also does not get any easier.

I studied and worked as a illustrator back in the day and my drawings do tend to take on an illustrative style at times but I quite like that as I'm not trying to achieve photo realism and i believe in letting a style develop naturally. Most are straight forward copies because they are only drawn so i can experiment with ideas or techniques. Some will be motivated by tones alone and others by textures. I love reflected light and dramatic lighting also .. I draw on smooth Bristol paper and Bristol Velum or Fabriano with a more textured surface, i find that moving from one to the other presents different challenges which i enjoy ... i draw to learn.

I also believe in sharing and so i will add the occasional walkthrough to share what i have learned. I have also added many old illustrations to my gallery for any who want to see them.

Thank you in advance for any faves, i do not have the time to answer each one personally but i do answer all comments and enjoy hearing from you all and visiting new watchers galleries.

I do consider commissioned work, if you are interested feel free to visit my website for all details or just send me an email ... my address is found at the top of this page.

Have a great 2015 and thank you for visiting my page .... enjoy your art :D
